Whitey Bulger: The Making of a Monster

Captured on June 22, 2011, after sixteen years as a fugitive from justice, and with his longevity as a crime boss, murderer and FBI informant, Whitey Bulger is, without question, one of the major crime figures in American history. Whitey did what no one else has ever managed to do before him: bring the FBI to its knees and have its agents working for him.

Made for broadcast with Investigation Discovery, Whitey Bulger: the Making of a Monster is the definitive biographical documentary about Whitey – a story that takes viewers into the heart of darkness of the legendary crime boss and cold-blooded killer. It digs deep into the mind of a psychopath, exploring the roots of his insatiable need for power and control. The documentary debunks the myth of the “Robin Hood of South Boston,” painting a deeply rendered portrait of evil.
